  • A flowering plant consists of a rosette of hairy basal leaves with long petioles, and from one to several flowering shoots, up to 50 cm tall, each bearing a dichasium of several to many flowers.
  • All the species studied have cyathia arranged in pleiochasia and each pleiochasial branch forms several pleiochasia or dichasia; the degree of branching in the inflorescence is variable.
  • But if two buds of a sympodial branch sprout at the same time, a more or less fork-shaped pattern, a dichasium, is formed.
